100 000 EUR doodled on my account. Yiha!

A very simple diddle, indeed, is this. The captain of a ship which is about to sail, is presented by an official looking person, with an unusually moderate bill of city charges. Glad to get off so easily, and confused by a hundred duties pressing upon him all at once, he discharges the claim forthwith. In about fifteen minutes, another less reasonable bill is handed him by one who soon makes it evident that the first collector was a diddler, and the original collection a diddle.
